Ampersand Valentine Art

Valentine-Ampersand-Thumbtack-Art-61

Make a work of art using just a 12 x 12 canvas and ~700 thumbtacks. I was looking for a twist on just the usual hearts this year for Valentine’s Day, so I picked another symbol for love, the ampersand. I especially love this project because once Valentine’s Day is over, it can live in our office all year round.

HO HO HO! Have you been good this year? No matter, you can be really good with this easy Holiday craft idea.

Santa Belly Paper Flower Holiday Craft Idea

This is such a great family or classroom craft idea too. It starts with a cool paper flower technique transformed into a Santa belly. Last month I made these cute paper flower turkeys for fun mason jar gift ideas using this same technique.

This is what I used to make these paper flower ornaments:

  • Holiday red patterned scrapbook paper
  • Gold glitter self-adhesive foam
  • Black self-adhesive foam
  • Wood circle (at least 2″)
  • Baker’s twine
  • XACTO knife or scissors
  • Glue gun
  • Clear tape
